The Best Way To Entertain Your Family At Thanksgiving Dinner

For when you don't wanna grandma to ask your significant other too many questions.

The Best Way To Entertain Your Family At Thanksgiving Dinner

Warning: some of these jokes are so bad; they may make you cringe.

As the holiday season rolls around, and you begin to wonder how that first Thanksgiving with your significant other and grandmother will go, thoughts of table conversation will likely cross your mind. Will grandma say something offensive? Will my significant other tell my extended family about that one time at Beta?

Have no fear, because there is one table topic every American family loves – food puns. When I asked my friend what her favorite Thanksgiving related food pun was, she responded with “don’t be a turkey.” Here are some food puns your family might actually enjoy this Thanksgiving season:

Start out the evening on a good note... “Looking for puns? I’m a pun-king.”

For that pre-dinner glass of wine to get the night rolling... “What did the grape say when it was crushed? Not much, just let out a little wine. “

When mom asks you to help her make the mashed potatoes.... “That doesn’t sound that a-peeling.”

While you’re stuck making the mashed potatoes with mom... “What do you call a potato that is hesitant to jump into boiling water? A hez-a-tater.”

As you start to fill your plate with different foods... “What did the corn say when the turkey complimented him? Aw shucks!”

When your family passes you the turkey for the second time, say “we meat again.”

As you eat your tenth bread roll of the meal, tell your family “I’m on a roll.”

When someone asks you to pass the jello, sing “jello from the other side!”

When you’re eating sweet potato casserole and your family keeps asking why you keep bringing up food puns... “I yam what I yam.”

When it gets to be about 3:14 in the afternoon... “I think it’s time for pi, everyone.”

And my favorite food pun of all time completely unrelated to Thanksgiving dinner...

Your family might be annoyed with your horrendous puns, but at least grandma won't ask your boyfriend too many questions. Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner, and good luck entertaining those pesky relatives!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
